Hello Year 2!
I am really sorry that some of you are having to stay at home this week and I hope that you are OK and are not feeling too poorly. We miss seeing you in school ! On this page is some home learning that you can have a go at if you are able to. If you want to get in touch with me via SEESAW or email that would be great. I will respond, but it will be after school finishes for the day, as I am in school teaching the rest of the children. I will also get in touch with you this week at some point to check how you are doing.
In school today we are carrying on with our work on multiplication.
We are looking at some word problems where you need to be able to calculate equal groups.
For example - If there are 2 wheels on a bike. How many wheels on 5 bikes ?
This is the same as 5 groups of 2 or 5 X 2.
I can draw a picture to help me if I need to.

DRAW TO BE SURE!
Can you write the mutiplication too?

I have done the first one for you to start you off.

In science today we are looking at waterproof materials and testing some materials to see if they are waterproof or not waterproof.
Watch the short video below and discuss with an adult what 'waterproof' means.
With an adult helping can you test some materials to see if they are waterproof?
You could make a table to record your results.
